Fall-Blooming Anemones
The Japanese anemone 'Honorine St. Jobert' becomes a spotlight in the garden at this time of year. It has handsome, dark green foliage that is almost purple. The waxy white blooms are spotted with golden disks. The counterpart is grapeleaf Japanese anemone (Anemone vitifolia). It produces wonderful pink blooms above handsome grape-leaved foliage. Plant in well-drained soils in full to part sun. Partner with ornamental grasses and the pink 'Clara Curtis' hardy chrysanthemum.
